DOSUKOI Sumo Salon is where we talk the ins and outs of Japan's national sport and present original, in-depth analysis. This time we get to grips with Sekiwake, the third-highest rank behind Yokozuna and Ozeki. We learn why Sekiwake are often compared to middle management and discover what it takes for them to earn promotion to Ozeki. Joining us as always is Nishonoseki Oyakata, who as Kisenosato experienced three demotions from the rank before finally breaking through and then going on to become Yokozuna.
